Practice TSHOOT Tickets with Packet Tracer & EVE-NG

March 6th, 2019 in Guide Go to comments

Special thanks to Buddy who sent us these files. Please say thanks to him. Now you can practice most TSHOOT Tickets with Packet Tracer v6.1. Please download all the tickets in one file here: https://www.networktut.com/download/Cisco_PT_6_1_TSHOOT_Package.zip. All the guides were included in that file.

Note: Please use at least the final Packet Tracer v6.1 (STUDENT Release) or above to open them. Below is a screenshot of the pkt files:


From Buddy:

Please notice: It’s mainly all the Packet Tracer TSHOOT L2 based trouble tickets, that needs to be reconfigured with STATIC IP addresses at the PC Clients by today

Thus when reconfiguring the two PC Clients with static IP addresses, please remember to also EXCLUDE the two Client IP addresses (.3 and .4) within the DHCP Pool at DHCP Server R4, at the same time.


Special thanks to Marcus for creating the TSHOOT topology with EVE-NG network emulator (currently this is one topology file with working configuration, not the tickets). You can download this file here: https://www.networktut.com/download/TShoot_300-135-TT_EVE-NG.zip. Below is screenshot of the EVE-NG file:


+ EVE-NG emulator must be installed to open this file.
+ This file uses these IOL images (but you may use other IOL images):
 – i86bi_LinuxL2-AdvEnterpriseK9-M_152_May_2018.bin
 – i86bi_LinuxL3-AdvEnterpriseK9-M2_157_3_May_2018.bin
+ Importing steps:
1. click ACTIONS/Import external labs
2. select target lab but don’t unzip it then import
3. BEFORE starting any nodes on ASW1,ASW2,DSW1,DSW2 select the Layer2 IOL image that is present in your eve.
4. click More actions/Start all nodes

    The PT v.6.1 “STUDENT” Release is available for download @ Cisco NetSpace.
    A valid user account is required to @ the .zip file there.

    Hi Buddy,

    Just passed Tshoot exam (1000/1000). I would like to thank you for the good job in creating these packet tracer practice labs. They have been very useful and good guide.

    Many thanks to CBT Nuggets – Jeremy, Networktut, Khattak, GNS3 Talk on Youtube and all the forum folks.
    I had no bug in the exam, everything was smooth. I used abort after analyzing every question till I reached the last ticket while copying down my answers. Then in one final and smooth move, I answered all the questioned confidently.
    The exam preparation was so enjoyable since I learned a lot of troubleshooting techniques. I realized I have a bit unique way of finding out the problems, very different from all the videos I watched and I believe everybody has their own way of solving exams. I would advice all to stick on their own way while learning from other people as well.

    Again I would like to thank all and wish best of luck for those preparing for the exam.

    Thank you,

    Yop – It really looks like the right thing!!!
    Good Job!
    However, pls. be aware, that the included “Tutorials” within this STUDENT Package above – alone – takes up about 90 – 100 MB on your Disk, and most people here probably don’t need those Tutorials – I presume!?
    So if you or somebody else here could find the same PT 6.1 STUDENT release as a “NO TUTORIALS” Package, it would be EVEN BETTER!
    If not – Just download the Full STUDENT Package above, and enjoy the Show! – It’s a GREAT Release anyway!
    Have fun! :-)

  6. Buddy
    July 10th, 2014

    Congrats Samo! – Good Job!
    (Although your result didn’t suprised me) :-)
    It’s a “wise” TSHOOT Conclusion, you’re telling within your Post above, I think – Just my style :-)
    Good Luck in your future career!

    Just got the PT V6.1 from the link given by NhanVo on this thread but not all commands can work on it like for Router Redundancy, bgp etc. please kindly show me the link to get the one that works. i want to prepare for my TSHOOT Exam

  8. Buddy
    July 10th, 2014

    PT 6.1 is a Network SIMULATOR App and thus Not a Network “Emulator” App like e.g. the GNS3 App including a full Cisco IOS Image etc.
    However the PT 6.1 Simulator supports (almost) every single IOS command you need – relevant for the current TSHOOT exam (+ in addition a number of other benefits, NOT supported by GNS3).
    Therefore, pls. read details and Tech Notes etc. within both the specific PT 6.1 based TSHOOT Tickets (Pull Down Menus) and within the provided “Read me FIRST” file included within the Ticket (.zip) Package.
    BTW – Excactly WHICH BGP cmd’s – relevant for indeed the current TSHOOT exam – do you think are missing within the PT 6.1. Simulator???

    Thank God, I passed the exam with 1000/1000!
    – 13 TT
    – No DD
    – 4 MCQ
    – No bug
    – No EIGRP Wrong AS No.
    – No IP helper add

    One advice for all who are going to take the exam:
    Divide the tickets into groups like:
    – 169.x ip add
    – 10.x ip add who can ping /
    – 10.x ip add who can’t ping /
    – 2 other TT (HSRP and OSPFv6)

    Just stay focused and you will pass !
    Thanks Networktut, Khattak Strategy, Flow Chart by Naren
    I wish you all good luck! :)

    Hey, I’m not finding the answers after finishing each TT.

    Thanks for everything!

  11. Buddy
    July 12th, 2014

    Pls click on the small “v” sign within the provided “Ticket Answer” Menu at the MID/BOTTOM of the PT screen – There you’ll find the 3 Ticket answers + quite often some valuable Tech Notes etc. for the actual Ticket.

    Hello NnanVo, kindly ignore my message as i just found the PT 6.1 now now.

    This is for anybody who faced a siimilar challenge like i did.

    the download link is shown below. Thanks.


  16. Buddy
    July 13th, 2014

    @NhanVo and Great:
    Pls read Post at TOP of this Page!!!
    As mentioned SEVERAL times – Present PT TSHOOT Tickets are made for INDEED the PT 6.1 “STUDENT” Version, and thus the former Build 111 BETA Version should be AVOIDED whenever possible – due to Ticket Stabillity and Performance issues within the BETA Version!!!
    Thank you!

  17. PT 6.1 Ticket Performance Tip:
    July 13th, 2014

    In order to increase Ticket Performance CONSIDERABLY within the PT 6.1 STUDENT Simulator, pls go to PT 6.1 Menu:

    Options / Preferences / Interface

    and Uncheck (Disable) as many PT Functions as ever possible on this setup screen, since they all takes up quite some “resources” within Packet Tracer, and you’ll most likely NOT need all theese (extra) PT functions etc. while Troubleshooting Tickets! – Right!?

    (Also pls Unchek PT “Logging” at the actual Screen!)

    Personally I’m just using:

    Device: “Name” and “Model” Label Enabled + “Show Port Labels When Mouse Over” + “Use CLI as Device Default Tab” – “Enabled”

    And then ALL OTHER PT functions “Disabled” (including PT “Logging”)!

    This way – every Ticket runs even better! – So pls try it out!

    Thank you!


  18. Buddy
    July 13th, 2014

    I’ve sometimes experienced the same problem like you, when Downloading a file.
    But if you try to download the FIRST PT 6.1 (STUDENT) Package file from NhanVo in perhaps one or two more attempts, then I think it’ll Work! – So pls try it out, and see if you’ll then succeed in getting the Package!?
    Thank you.

  19. PT 6.1 Ticket Performance Tip # 2:
    July 15th, 2014

    To further Offload PT 6.1 / Increase Ticket Performance, pls also enter the PT “Multiuser” Submenues within the PT “Extensions” MainMenu, and “Disable” ALL options here, since
    also PT Multiuser I/O Traffic etc. ain’t needed while running Tickets!

    Passed today with a score of 931/1000, gratefully to you networktut. All tickets are still valid, ticket 6 Vlan filter it is still getting the bug, I had to choose ASW1, not sure what questions I have mistaken, 2 MCQ and 1 DD, the DD question slightly different but same topic. The 3rd question of each ticket is a little trick, you can find like 2 “right” answers if you do not pay attention to the commands.

    Again, thank you guys a lot! Now I’m CCNP!

    July 22nd, 2014

    You need to download PT 6.1 “STUDENT” Version from Cisco NetSpace etc., since Tickets ain’t supported correctly within the former PT 6.1 Build 111 (Beta) release – Pls. study earlier Post’s within this Thread!

  26. NhanVo
    July 23rd, 2014

    Please search and download with Bittoren, I downloaded with the link below. Retry, if you cannot, I will upload for you

    I hope it will be Cisco Packet Tracer 6.1 Student

    My tricks for someone need to verify the tickets

    After define clients of group
    – Can ping 10.1.1
    – Cannot ping
    – Clients: 169.x.x.x
    – Others: HSRP and OSPFv6

    You can see the question 3 first, and trace forward to question 2 and quest 1 for each one.

    Something for share :)

    in packet tracer practical test TT 12 , i cant found : redistribute ospf 1 metric 100 10 255 1 1500 route-map OSPF_to_EIGRP
    i found only redistribute ospf 1 ,, and also no map

  47. A.sami
    October 29th, 2014

    sorry i the last comment i speaks about TT 11 ,and also there are another TT have aproblems

  48. Buddy
    October 29th, 2014

    Yes – That’s indeed why you should CAREFULLY study both the included “Read Me First” text file within the PT .zip archive + the provided Tech Notes for PT Tickets: 2 + 6 + 11, since the Packet Tracer 6.1 release just supports theese Network Technologies partially.
    Just click at the small “v”-sign within the small pull-down menu at the mid/BOTTOM Packet Tracer Toolbar, to obtain the various Tech Notes for the individual 3 Tickets!
    So, pls try this in order to get some answers to your questions above!
    Thank You.

    passed with 1000/1000. no DD, few MCQ with new choices. All TT same, no ip helper, no wrong eigrp AS. thanks to all since route and switch in digitalt and certprep. thanks to Mian i believe who posted the pkttracer studt link, Buddy who created the practice tshoot PKT which i studied and practiced a lot with. khattak and Naren for their guides which helped the process of elimination. thanks for rrg who posted the topology which gave glimpse of the actual one. thanks to ENA for the guide which i didnt get it at first but after reading said guide above made sense of the relevance of pings and traceroute on specific points in the topology. thanks to igor though didnt use the tshoot vce but used the route, switch ones.
